Megachurch vs. Microsoft

Reverend Ken Hutcherson is the pastor of the Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington–also the home of everyone’s favorite operating system company: Microsoft. Apparently feeling that Microsoft is straying a little too far from God’s word and it’s his job to set them on the right path.

The ultraconservative Hutcherson, whose “office is decorated with the heads of deer, elk and a buffalo (‘when I run into animals, I kill them and bring them home and eat them’)” has decided to rally the forces of God to try to buy a controlling share in Microsoft–whose net worth is currently somewhere around $300 billion.

Hilarity ensues.

    OK, his race may not be totally irrelevant. But a “point of interest” is not usually the second word in an article.”Black” comes before his name. Is it really that interesting?

    It is totally relevant! Conservative, right-wing Christian evangelism is heavily associated with white America, especially in the UK (this is a British newspaper). His blackness is a departure from an assumed norm and therefore a point of interest. Also, being a conservative christian meat-eater is not associated with being an idiot – acting like an idiot is. This guy actually said that stuff to a reporter, and it got printed. Why should they go out of their way to make him look better than he is for the sake of fairness.

    The first descriptor they drop is “black.” It’s the second word in the article, despite being almost entirely irrelevant.

    While I agree that what Hutcherson is doing is pretty dumb, I’ve got to wonder why being conservative, eating meat and being christian is equated with being an idiot in this post. Just look at the way it is written. The comment about the animals was especially unnecessary to the point of the blog post.
